The Name is Vantage…V12 Vantage

Here at Redusernab we typically shy away from the glut of press releases. . However, some releases that cross my inbox deserve mention. Last week I received such a news item. Aston Martin makes beautiful, expensive sports cars and they have quite the stable as their lineup currently stands. You can choose from the V8 Vantage, DB9, Rapide, and the DBS. Recently, they added a new two-door into the mix by taking the much loved 6.0L V12 engine and ramming it into the engine bay of the Vantage. Sadly this car was not destined for US shores…until now.

Due to unprecedented customer demand, Aston Martin is giving folks what they want – a Vantage that screams forth with 510 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 190 mph. If the standard V12 Vantage is not exclusive enough for you, Aston Martin will let you order a special Carbon Black edition (similar to the available package on the DBS).

Lucky sonsofbitches customers who order the V12 Vantage can expect to take delivery starting in the 4th quarter of this year. The price is yet to be announced.

Hope the jump for another photo and a video clip I found on Youtube of Tiff Needell reviewing the car. … Continue Reading

The Uberbird Begins to Wake From Her Slumber


I’m at Casa_Science and the Bavarian Beast is getting some attention.

Oh the Wares in this House!

Friend of Redusernab MikeTheDog, who is in fact not a dog at all despite the confusing facial scruff, recently attended an automotive get-together at a Ypsilanti warehouse. It turned out not to be a collection of modded Z’s, BMWs with aftermarket wheels, and MkV Golfs with rusted hoods. No…this was a show. … Continue Reading

Ohhhhh…. Baracuda

For the past few Saturdays I have been taking my rescue dog (Beans) to a local outdoor class. The goal is not for him to learn obedience or tricks, but to make him feel more comfortable around new people and in different places. The class lasts for an hour and it is typically my wife or myself who take our dog there. This week we went together and I am quite happy that we decided to do so. Parked across the street from the lot where we take Beans was this wonderful example of some Mopar Muscle. I gave my wife “the pretty-please” face and asked her to hold the leash… … Continue Reading

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS

We often talk about the joy of driving slow cars – fast. It can be quite thrilling to take a car more inclined towards fuel economy than fueling excitement and drive it with purpose through a canyon pass. You have to work harder to receive your reward. The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS is such a car. It offers acceptable levels of fuel economy (nearly 30 mpg on the highway), boasts stand-out style, and allows me to squeeze as much fun as I can out of the naturally-aspirated 2.4L MIVEC inline four-cylinder engine. … Continue Reading

2010 Buick Enclave

The luxury crossover segment is filled with bloated road-pigs that feature high price tags and mammoth curb weights. The 2010 Buick Enclave CXL-2 AWD is not an exception here. However, the direct-injection V6 engine under the hood, the refined style outside, and the surprising levels of luxury inside add up to package that allows it to play with the best in the class. … Continue Reading

The Car from Kick-Ass…Kicks Ass?

It looks like a gaudy movie prop…and to be quite honest in many ways it is. This is the car known as Red Mist from the new film Kick-Ass. Hidden beneath the ducting and huge scoop however, sits a pretty awesome car. Want the stats? Click to … Continue Reading

Breaking News: Aftermarket Manufacturer Makes Tasteful Wheels – World Stunned!

Jeff Glucker April 21, 2010 All Things Hoon

Rocket Racing Wheels has just released a new series of wheels designed for the modern muscle car. That is nothing new, what is strange is that they actually look good. The problem with most aftermarket wheels is that they try to do too much. These wheels have a classic style crafted out of modern aluminum. We don’t often get excited about press releases, but I was happy to see someone realizing that less can be so much more. Hop the jump for a shot of the Mustang and Challenger both wearing the Rocket Racing Wheels. … Continue Reading

Ten hours, four states, and one foolproof plan: how I learned to stop worrying and love the motorcycle – Part One

[Ed. Note: BZR spins a fanciful tale about his purchase of his two-wheeled Eleanor. You can read more of his work at .]

Someday... I'll feel this way

The motorcycle looked just like it had in the small, blurry photos from the eBay listing. Its paintjob was a combination of rust, swirls, and faded flat black paint layered on with a brush. What little chrome on the bike had either been rattle-canned into the same dirty flat black color or had been heavily pitted from a drought of Brasso. Both tires were covered in a thick layer of dust. The super-rare, once-gleaming 4-into-1 exhaust pipes showed deep gouges of rust like animal scratches. The four Keihin carburetors were covered in a depressing layer of dirt and grease that had fossilized into an impenetrable substance. What precious little engine paint that hadn’t flaked off was heavily tarnished. The small Judge-Dredd-esque front fairing that exaggerated the enormous single headlight was lying on the ground next to the machine.  The spokes looked like they would betray the wheels at any point and collapse under strains of their own rust.

“Want to hear it run?” the seller, Don, said reassuringly. … Continue Reading
